The Anxiety Program to Take Back Control of Your Life
You just don’t feel like yourself when you’re facing anxiety. Going out, doing chores, running errands become a drain. You have to give yourself a pep talk just to get out the door and face the day. The thought of an upcoming social event fills you with apprehension rather than excitement. You overthink, expect the worse and dwell on the negative…it’s exhausting.
So you fill your day with some calming essential oils, you take deep breaths, you go to yoga and while it certainly helps, it still feels like you’re struggling to stay afloat. It takes a toll on your physical health making you tired, ruining your skin, throwing off your stomach and making you crave junk food. It’s frustrating so you end up feeling irritable and sad and sometimes you take it out on those closest to you.
In a 2016 survey done by CAMH, 40% of participants reported having anxiety or depression. You’ll find different stats depending on the survey you look at, but the bottom line is always the same – it’s a REAL problem and it is COMMON. Let that last word sink in. You’re not alone, you’re not crazy and you’re not selfish or overreacting by seeking help.
The 8-Week Anxiety Program I run is designed to help you regain a sense of control over your stress and anxiety. It digs deep and hits at the root causes of your symptoms. It’s not a cartful of “anxiety supplements” – it’s a full body, lifestyle-makeover approach because that is how anxiety should be treated. Here’s the breakdown of each week:
Week 1 – Calm the Nervous System
Week 2 – Restore Nutrition
Week 3 – Fix Unhealthy Thinking
Week 4 – Balance Hormones
Week 5 – Heal the Gut
Week 6 – Regulate Blood Sugar
Week 7 – Mind Hacking Habits
Week 8 – Connect to Resources
You can choose to do this program with or without weekly acupuncture.

By the end of the program you will have spent 8 solid weeks working on taking control of your anxiety. You will have put yourself in a position that makes it harder for anxiety to find a home in your life. You will feel more in control of your anxiety rather than feeling like your anxiety is controlling you. You’ll walk away with key strategies that will help you thrive in the face of anxiety. Most importantly, when you tackle anxiety, you can move on, live the lifestyle you strive for and bring out the best version of YOU for you and your loved ones.
